3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A golden hue with a small white small head. A caramel aroma with strong alcohol. The malts flood the taste buds with some toffee and alcohol. Very sweet with a bitterness in the aftertaste. A nice smooth soft palate with nice carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The color is a gorgrous opaque golden orange color with a medium white head and dark yet small sediment floating throughout. The aroma blends Belgian yeast, sour fruit, and flowers, and the taste is bold on the front with a mild sweetness mixed with a touch of sourness hitting the tongue first. Although it does mellow and balance out more as the beer finishes in your mouth, the palate’s combination of the soft carbonation, medium body, and thick texture round out nicely for an amazing beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle into chalice, 2012 vintage. Pours moderately cloudy golden orange color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of apricot, pear, apple, peach, clove, pepper, honey, bread, candi sugar, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of big apricot, pear, apple, peach, light banana, clove, pepper, honey, toast, biscuit, candi sugar, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of apricot, pear, apple, light banana, clove, honey, biscuit, candi sugar, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance, robustness, and complexity of malt and fruity/spicy yeast flavors; with a nice yeast/malt sweetness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately slick and creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice tripel style. All around good balance, robustness, and complexity of malt and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
